Miami announces Olsen suspension
By Andrea Adelson
Miami officially announced Sunday that quarterback Kevin Olsen has been suspended from the season opener against Louisville for a violation of team standards.
The suspension was one of the worst kept secrets in college football, initially reported by multiple news outlets in early August. Olsen was the projected starter headed into fall camp, but the suspension changed the quarterback competition. Miami coach Al Golden will start true freshman Brad Kaaya over transfer Jake Heaps.
Olsen is not scheduled to make the trip to Louisville. In addition, receiver Rashawn Scott is out for the game with a shoulder/clavicle injury. Interestingly, Miami did not list injured quarterback Ryan Williams (knee) on the injury report.
The teams play Monday night (8 ET, ESPN).
